On target; Wells FFA Boosters hold 3rd annual bow shoot

by Cristin Parker

The Wells FFA Booster Club recently held its third annual bow shoot on Mt. Hope Cemetery Road in Wells. The shoot, held June 9, helped raise funds for the Wells chapter of the FFA.

Event organizers reported 11 shooters braved the heat to test their skills against the new 3D targets the Boosters club recently purchased for the shoots.

“Our booster club made the decision to purchase the targets used for future bow shoots,” event co-organizer Brian Phillips said. “This was a big investment for us, but we believe as more people get to know we have the 3D targets, more people will come out to shoot.”

The shooting tournament offered four age groups for participants to shoot in and even had a traditional division.

“We would like to say big thank you to David Seymore of Seymore Outdoors for helping organize the event,” Phillips said.

Event winners included Meagan Seymore, first place; Bronson Tarrant, second place; and Sasha Matthews, third place in the Youth 9-12 Division. Placing in the Youth 13-16 Division were Dylan Seymore, first place and Christopher Dean, second place. Kelly Harris took home first place in the Traditional Division while Craig Yates, William Hunt and Joseph Tarrant took home first through third place, respectively, in the Adult Men’s Division.

The Wells FFA Booster Club will hold its next shoot in September.
